Topics:Diabetes Controllable? and Unity

Q1. Type 1, Type 2, Type 1.5/LADA and Gestational diabetes (just to name a few) are all hard to control. Do you think diabetes controllable?
I think that one can control various things within their lives, but I do not think you can control all things and in that area all you can do is make the best of things as they come at you.

Q1.5 Do you think manage is a better word to use verses control?
Yes to me manage is a better word to use when it comes to diabetes over control at least for me that is the case.

Q2. What 3 things have you learned about self-care from the different types of diabetes?
1 that everyone is different when it comes to how diabetes effects them
2 that no two diabetics regardless of what type they have are the same when it comes to over all treatment
3 having someone who will listen and not judge you to talk to can be a big help when it comes to dealing with this condition

Q3. How can we rally together to rid the “Who’s got it worse” syndrome?
No idea just general education is all I know of that can help in this area when all is said and dun.
